The Spurs limited Klay Thompson to 12 points on 4-of-16 shooting on Sunday, with five rebounds, two 3-pointers, one steal and one assist.
Thompson didn't make a single shot within 15 feet and finished with a team-worst net rating of -24.4, and credit is due to Danny Green's defense tonight. The Warriors' pace was down tonight, though, and it shouldn't take long for Thompson to regain his elite shooting stroke -- after all, he was a combined 31-of-49 from the field (63.3%) in the first three games of the series.

Klay Thompson made 11-of-13 from the field for 27 points with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Spurs during a Game 1 113-92 win on Saturday.

The jumper was working for a tidy 103.8 effective field goal percentage. Thompson was the game's leading scorer today and he'll likely have that distinction again with the Spurs having so many bad matchups. His perimeter defense was as good as usual to keep the Spurs out of the paint. With Stephen Curry out for the next week, Thompson should continue to see shots in the teens.
Apr 14 - 5:47 PM

Klay Thompson ended up with 34 points across 34 minutes in Sunday's 117-100 win at Phoenix.

Fantasy owners might be a little disappointed, actually, as Thompson dropped 22 points in the first quarter and it looked like a monster night was underway. It was his first 20-point quarter of the season, and eight of his career. He was 9-of-11 in the first 12 minutes, and ended up 14-of-23, including 6-of-13 from long range. The Dubs wrap up their regular season on Tuesday in Salt Lake City before their real season begins.
Apr 8 - 11:15 PM

Klay Thompson (thumb) ended up with 16 points across 30 minutes in a loss to the Pacers on Thursday night.

Thompson grabbed seven boards but didn't bring much else to the table, finishing with one assist, one steal and one turnover. Klay was also inefficient offensively, shooting just 6-of-16 from the field. However, he did make four his four his nine attempts from behind the arc.
Apr 5 - 9:53 PM

Klay Thompson (thumb) said he doesn't want to miss any more games this season.

The Warriors already have the No. 2 seed in the west locked up, so this is nice to hear for a change. "I've missed enough games this year," he said. "I just want to keep a good rhythm. I do that by playing." Even if he plays in each of Golden State's five remaining games, there's a good chance the Warriors will limit his minutes along with their other studs.
Apr 2 - 9:35 AM

Klay Thompson (thumb) ended up with 23 points across 33 minutes in the second end of a back-to-back set on Sunday against the Suns.

Thompson hit 10-of-19 from the field, including 2-of-5 from behind the 3-point line, and he added two rebounds, two assists, two steals with just one turnover. He looks better than ever in his two games since returning from a fractured right thumb, averaging 24.0 points with 2.5 3-pointers and 1.5 steals per game. Get him back in the active fantasy lineup immediately if you haven't already done so.
Apr 1 - 11:24 PM

Klay Thompson (thumb) is available to play vs. Phoenix on Sunday.

This should mean that he'll be in the starting lineup, and owners can deploy him as usual.
Apr 1 - 7:37 PM

Klay Thompson (thumb) looked just fine in his return to action on Saturday against the Kings, playing 32 minutes.

Thompson was sidelined due to a fractured right thumb, but he did not show any issues by going 10-of-19 shooting, including 3-of-7 from behind the arc, to finish with 25 points. He also added two rebounds, an assist and a steal with four turnovers. The Warriors have a quick turnaround, hosting the Suns on Sunday. It should be a big game for the Golden State offense, and there is no reason to believe Thompson will be limited or held out due to the back-to-back situation.
Apr 1 - 12:58 AM

Klay Thompson (thumb) will be in the starting lineup against the Kings on Saturday.

He'll join Quinn Cook, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and JaVale McGee. There's no reason to think Klay will be limited on minutes, but his thumb injury could affect his shot. Regardless, he has to be starting in seasonal leagues, and he's an option as a sneaky DFS play.
Mar 31 - 10:03 PM

Klay Thompson (thumb) will return from a fractured right thumb Saturday at Sacramento, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

As has been the case all week, Thompson will be returning from his hand injury. He's been going through on-court work for about two weeks and he sounded ready at practice on Friday, so we're expecting him to be hitting the ground running. This will take shots from Nick Young and Pat McCaw, but Quinn Cook still can be trusted despite a lower upside.
Mar 31 - 3:33 PM

Klay Thompson (thumb) went through shootaround on Saturday.

He is considered probable, but it would be a major shock to see Thompson not play. He's been talking about playing Saturday all week and went through a full practice on Friday. Thompson should get a ton of shots tonight with no Stephen Curry, so he could be in for a big night against a team he has lit up before -- he scored 37 points in one quarter against them in 2015.
Mar 31 - 2:59 PM

Klay Thompson (fractured right thumb) is probable for Saturday against the Kings.

Klay himself said he considered himself probable for this game and talked about it at shootaround today. "I feel great. I've been shooting it great," Thompson said. "I'm eager to get back out there." He's been doing on-court work for most of this month and he may not have a restriction in his return to the lineup. Nick Young and Pat McCaw will lose a few minutes.
Mar 30 - 4:35 PM

Klay Thompson (thumb) went through practice on Friday.

It sounds like he has a great chance to play on Saturday against the Kings. On Thursday, coach Steve Kerr said "possibly Saturday" is a target for Klay to play, and everything he said about Thompson today made it seem more likely. Maybe he rests Sunday for a back-to-back set, but obviously add Klay right now.
Mar 30 - 3:03 PM

Klay Thompson (thumb) could return this weekend, according to coach Steve Kerr.

"Possibly Saturday," Kerr said. The Dubs have a back-to-back set this weekend, and the target date sounds like it's Sunday. He's been going through some practice for almost two weeks now, and this thumb issue may not affect his conditioning. Pat McCaw and Nick Young will be losing minutes soon.
Mar 29 - 9:08 PM

Klay Thompson (thumb) will not play on Thursday against the Bucks, as expected.

The Dubs next two games will be a Saturday-Sunday back-to-back set, and most reports indicate that Thompson will be back in action on Sunday night. He's not really worth hanging onto if your Finals ends at Week-24, but he's worth stashing for fantasy formats that go beyond that. Nick Young will remain the starting two-guard for at least two more games.
